Another set of solid British folk-rock from these longtime vets is loaded with soaring group harmonies, rather ambient textures, and an authentic feel and musicianship that marks all of their best work. Though these tracks don't necessarily pack the punch of the work of earlier Steeleye Span lineups, there is hardly a bad song here. The set might suffer from a slight homogenous feel, but there is no arguing with tracks like the opener "The Prickly Bush," the graceful balladry of "Go From My Window," and the darkly satirical "You Will Burn." This is definitely a band that has aged well and does its legacy no injustice with releases as even as this.
